2008 Corporate Asian Women's Leadership Forum

Born to Lead: Corporate Asian Women Making a Difference

June 17, 2008


AWIB's Fourth Annual Corporate Leadership Conference - Born to Lead: Corporate Asian Women Making a Difference was a big hit. Top Asian women executives took part in a lively forum discussing issues of leadership and success in the corporate world. The varied backgrounds of the speakers - from biotechnolgy to retail to recruiting and professional services - also added to the appeal of the event. The evening began with a networking reception which offered attendees a chance to meet with their peers from across industries.

Barbara Adachi, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Amy de Rham, Senior Client Partner, Korn Ferry International
Maykin Ho, Partner, Goldman Sachs
Aru Kulkarni, President, Jones Apparel Group

Alina Cho, Correspondent, CNN served as moderator and brilliantly guided the discussion covering a broad cross section of topics to make it an excellent learning experience. An exciting Q&A session with attendees offered a look at the women behind the leaders. This was followed by a dessert reception which allowed for more networking and one-on-one conversations with the speakers.

The evening also served a great cause - all proceeds from Born to Lead will go towards the Asian Women In Business Scholarship Fund - which promotes leadership among Asian women in college. A special thanks to Goldman Sachs for their partnership - AWIB appreciates their commitment to promoting and developing Asian women leaders; and NYSE Euronext for their generosity.
